Phone [Q] Need update advice for Captivate

I have a Captivate that was unlocked by ATT. It still has Eclair 2.1 and I want to update. Does anyone have any advice as to which would be better, Gingerbread, IceCream, JellyBean or KitKat?

JellyBean imo. The cappy doesn't have the hardware to run KitKat smoothly.

In my experience light JellyBean 4.2.2 ROMs run best on Captivate:
CM 10.1.0 Stable, SlimBean build 8, GamerzROM v4.0, ported CyanAOSP v.4.0.0, ported SuperNexus 2.0, etc.
- HTC Desire 601 LTE, KK Android 4.4.2 (main phone)
- Acer Iconia Tab A200, ICS Android 4.0.3 (games tablet)
- Samsung i896 Captivate, JB Android 4.2.2 (backup phone)
